They didn't look like pirates: they looked like ordinary fishermen, but with eyes as quick and glittering as their knives ... Trung's adventure begins in the dead of night. He and his father escape the soldiers with guns. But what awaits them across the dark sea? Across the Dark Sea features a fishing boat used to flee Vietnam after the war. It is based on an actual boat, the Hong Hai, which is now part of the National Museum's collection.
